  • SCHS beats Rockcastle in...

    When the Rockets collided Monday night, there was only one team left standing.

    Playing In the Capital City Invitational at the at Frankfort Convention Center, the Shelby County Rockets flew around the court, hit the boards hard and played tough defense to take down the Rockcastle County Rockets, 55-33.

  • Darryl Hicks: Mature beyond his...

    Just looking at Darryl Hicks, he appears to be just like any other player on the Shelby County High School basketball team.

    You see loads of potential in his long, 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame that appears to have room to grow.

    What you don't see is that Hicks has to ride the bus to practice everyday, and he doesn't clown around with his teammates in the hall between classes.

    That’s because he is 14 years old and an eighth grader at West Middle School.

    But he also is the first player off the bench for the Rockets.

  • Trinity rallies past Rockets

    A ferocious fourth-quarter capped a dominant second half as Trinity (2-0) upended the host Rockets (1-2), 70-48, Saturday.

    The Shamrocks outscored Shelby County, 44-19, in the second half, including a 31-12 whipping in the fourth quarter.

  • Lady Rockets hold off South

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team nearly let a 10-point lead slip away in the fourth quarter of a 47-46 victory at South Oldham Friday.

    Taylor Shaw hit one of two free throws with just seconds remaining to push the Lady Rockets’ lead to three, 47-44. The Lady Dragons responded in a strange fashion, taking a lay in at the buzzer instead of trying for the tie with a 3-point shot.

    “We knew we had to guard the three, and I’m not really sure why they took the shot they did,” SCHS Coach Sally Zimmerman said.

  • Rockets fall 28-6 at Madison...

    The SCHS football team failed to pick up its first win of the season, falling 28-6 at Madison Central Friday.

    The Rockets fell behind early, trailing 21-0 at halftime, and never could recover. The offense struggled again; turning the ball over six times, twice on downs, and didn't score until late in the third quarter. After Tavis Elzy intercepted a pass, SCHS QB Matt Page hit Elzy on a 20-yard pass for the Rockets' only score. The extra point was blocked.

    See Wednesday's Sentinel-News for a full recap of the game.

  • Oldham too much for Shelby

    Shelby County got down early and couldn't recover in a 3-0 loss to Oldham County in the 8th Region Championship at Oldham County on Wednesday.

    Oldham's Jacob Kemper took a pass from Shawn Parker and lofted a shot over SCHS keeper David Breen and into the side net for a 1-0 lead less than 40 seconds into the first half, forcing the Rockets to play from behind all night.

    "We just weren't sharp coming out of the gate," SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. "You can't give him [Kemper] a look from anywhere, because he'll take it."

  • SCHS volleyball falls in region...

    Shelby County hoped to get some revenge when it faced Oldham County in the semifinals of the 8th Region Volleyball Tournament on Wednesday at Bullitt East, but the Colonels had a different idea.

    The Rockets hung close in the first game before falling, 25-18, but Oldham County steamrolled Shelby, 25-6, in the second to win the match 2-0.

    "Oldham was our season opener this year, and they were able to eek out a victory [25-18, 25-21], so we were looking forward to a possible revenge match," SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said.

  • Rockets heading to Madison...

    After last Friday's showing at Eastern, SCHS Coach Todd Shipley is looking for a better effort at district foe Madison Central tonight at 7:30.

    "We have to be better than last week," he said. "We need to get off blocks and make tackles."

    This week won't be an easy task for the Rockets (0-7, 0-2). In Shelby's last chance to win a district game, the Indians (6-1, 1-1) will feature a potent running attack with two explosive runners.

    "Keshawn Simpson is a man among boys," Shipley said. "And Isaiah Kavanaugh is as explosive a runner as we'll see."

  • Rockets to face Oldham for third...

    SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot wasn't happy with his team's play against Oldham County in the 16th District title game last week, a 2-0 loss. But Andriot knows his team will be better when it meets host Oldham County at 7 p.m. today in the 8th Region Tournament championship.

    "The deal this time is lose, and you go home," he said. "I know these guys don't want to go home, so they'll be ready. This team, when they play with the intensity they had [Monday] against CAL, can hang with anybody."

  • Rockets pull away from CAL

    The SCHS boys' soccer team used a 4-1 victory over Christian Academy Louisville on Monday to advance to tonight's 8th Region championship game at Oldham County High School.

    "These guys really wanted it tonight," SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. "It was unbelievable - their intensity was amazing."

    SCHS will play host Oldham County at 7 o'clock.
